Hello, Developers!

This menu should appear with 3 options, 2 of which are unusable until you add at least 2 cutscene points, we’ll get to that in a moment.

Click on the Add Point button. This should appear.

You can change these values at your leisure, here is what each one means:

Switch to Next Point when done? | If set to true, the camera will immediately switch to the next cutscene point once it has finished transitioning to the current point.
FOV | Will tween the Camera’s Field Of View up to the set amount.
Transition | The time the Camera takes to reach the current cutscene point.
Easing Style | Determines the way in which the camera’s tweening will act for the current cutscene point.
Easing Direction | Controls the direction of the Easing Style chosen.

When you are done, click on Add Cutscene Point.
This should add a new Cutscene Point into the Workspace .

If you have added at least two cutscene points, the two buttons Preview & Insert will now be open to you.

If you want to see a preview of your cutscene, click on Preview. You should see your cutscene in action as if a cutscene script is in your game already.


Inserting Your Cutscene

To insert your cutscene into your game, click on Insert.
You should see this.

You can choose when the cutscene will play, you can choose from the following:

Executable | Inserts a ModuleScript into the Workspace. An example script can be found below.
Part Touched | Inserts a Part & a LocalScript. Activates the cutscene when the cutscene part is touched.
Player Entered | Inserts a LocalScript which activates the cutscene when you joined.
Player Died | Inserts a LocalScript which activates the cutscene when you die.

Example Script:

local module = require(workspace.CutsceneExecutionModule)
delay(1, module:PlayFullCutscene())

Opening Saved Cutscenes

Awesome contribution! The UI fits with the Studio, the code is clean and for now, I haven’t come across bugs! This is really useful, so I don’t have to script camera movement by myself with CFrame!

Thank you for this! May turn out to be really useful for my later projects.

Looks cool! Your cutscene images remind me of Adobe’s though.

I think perhaps that that was intentional on the part of OP.

Yeah, I intended on making my icons similar to Adobe’s.

Mate this is really nice since the Deprecated Plugin is kinda out dated now :smiley:

I used to use CloneTrooper’s cutscene editor plugin. And since it is deprecated, that gave me an idea to make Cutscenify. There were a few features I would have liked to see in the old plugin. I’m adding those features into my plugin. :smiley:

The plugin broke studio for me and now I can only look in one direction in the game I used it in.

Have you installed any other plugins that manipulate the camera?

I installed a different plugin to do the same thing, it happened when I pressed the preview button.

Cutscenify doesn’t work with other plugins.
You should deactivate the other plugin for Cutscenify to work.

I did remove the old plugin before downloading Cutscenify, would F3X do anything to it?

I’m not sure, but if it changes the CFrame of the camera or it’s CameraType, it should be deactivated for the plugin to work properly.
